Gustavo Gómez & Anabela Miranda
Vivetango – living Tango
Gustavo Gomez has been teaching together with his wife Gabi for about 16 years in Germany. Previously, he worked in a dance school in his home country Argentina.
Gustavo teaches mainly in the south of Munich, Germany, also in Regensburg, Rosenheim, Innsbruck and in Argentina, where he is "at home".
Important Tango personalities who have influenced Gustavo's dancing are: Johanna Copes, Bruno Gibertoni, Alejandra Mantinan, Aoniken Quiroga, Martin Ojeda, Mariana Montes Sebastian Arce, El Pibe Sarandi, Adrian Veredice, Oscar Mandagaran, Jorge el Turco.
Gustavo has a contagious and emotional way in conveying his technique not only to the man/leader but also to the lady/ follower.
In addition, a shot of humor is never missing, a pinch of "the original Argentine way" and a handful of stories from real life.
Would you like to see him dance? Here are a few Videos of his performances together with his wife Gabi.
Anabela Miranda is from San Rafael, a town in the western Argentinean province of Mendoza. Already as a little girl she received lessons in classical ballet, contemporary dance and folklore. She decided to turn her passion into a profession and continued her career as a dancer in Buenos Aires. She studied choreography and dance performance at the National Art Institute of the University of Buenos Aires.
Tango entered her life in 2008 and has been shaping it ever since. She first began teaching tango and contemporary dance in her hometown San Rafael, founding her own dance school and winning numerous awards in competitions.
In 2014, she moved to the capital and performed in shows with various world-renowned dancers and ensembles in Argentina and Europe.
With her students, she wants to share her experience and her knowledge, but above all, her passion and her love for tango.
The theme of the workshop at La Rogaia:
Discover your own Tango!
Gustavo's and Gabi's philosophy is that everybody already has his or her own tango inside. It is the teachers' task to awaken this inward tango. When we learn Tango we should not try to just copy other dancers. Thomas should dance as Thomas and Anna should dance as Anna. It is the individual originality that Gustavo and Gabi want to convey and promote to their students.
The lessons will focus on:
- Axis and equilibrium: each partner in his/ her own axis and at the same time keeping a common axis
- Male and female technique: walking, joint movements, leading, following and accompanying
- Musicality: phrases in music, legato and staccato, major and minor keys, melody and rhythm, instruments and vocals, breaks
